Shellshag at Don Giovanni 2013 Showcase (more by Caroline Harrison)

Brooklyn duo Shellshag, who recorded the track, "Green Vapors," with Screaming Females for their Chalk Tape, will release their new album, Shellshag Forever, on April 16 via Don Giovanni. The album features the track, "Face to Face," which Shellshag performed an acoustic version of for the BrooklynVegan 'Green Room Sessions', and you can stream the punky studio version below. Also below is the album artwork and tracklist.

As usual, Shellshag have a number of upcoming local (and some non-local) shows. Most excitingly, they'll share a bill with Screaming Females on April 20 at Maxwell's, which hopefully means they'll collaborate on stage during "Green Vapors." The rest of that show's lineup is great too, including Swearin' (who play Indie Pop Prom tonight [2/28]) Hilly Eye, and Great Thunder (the project of Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield and her boyfriend/Swearin' bassist Keith Spencer). Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Shellshag's other local dates include Friday (3/1) at Lulu's (113 Franklin St), March 11 at Acheron with Pity Party, March 21 at Silent Barn with Extra Feeler, and April 13 at Union Pool with RVIVR, Dogjaw, and Extra Feeler. Advance tickets for the Union Pool show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, along with the song stream, album art and tracklist, below...

I have seen Shellshag a few times live. this band totally sucks. screaming females is an awesome band and I can never figure out why they associate themselves with this subpar crap

i like that rvivr is headlining all of these NY shows, but the only time they get listed on here is when BV cares about the support (e.g. shellshag / ps eliot)

I really don't understand how anyone could hate on Shellshag. They certainly don't "suck", they're just playing music that you don't find interesting. There is absolutely nothing offensive about them. They've been doing it for a long time, they're really solid people, and lots of people who know fuck more about music than 11:46 are fans.
I've seen them 3 times and each show was a good time.

Shellshag is just a lot different than Screamales. While they might not be as technically awesome as them, they make up for it with intensity, fun, and energy. They built a fucking pyramid with all of their equipment last show!? I think that's pretty cool...also Swearin' is playing YES.

"screaming females is an awesome band and I can never figure out why they associate themselves with this subpar crap"

Same label.

But I agree, SF: great band, Shellshag not so much.

Shellshag is a great band. Their live shows are so fun - I've seen them 5-6 times. Shellshag are awesome people.
